Thks to KimSim and Terumo for the reply.

May I know if the Armaflex insulation at the outdoor compressor is it better to hv it wrap with aluminum foil tape to protect against sun and rain?
Will it be good to have it or will cause more problems?
(I noticed mostly no tape, only some hv put the silver aluminium tape)

With or without the aluminum, no issues.

New Aircon Units

Please do not buy Aircon from Courts. Their installation workmanship is very bad. This pic is an installation from Courts at my friend home. My friend told me it is useless to complaint because Courts unable to control their installation team well. It seems like Courts face difficulties to find suitable workers to do this job.

Show the photo to Courts and complaint the bad workmanship. They can ask the same contractor back to replace insulation and tape it back properly and take less than half hour.

Hi aircon experts, just a question… I'm buying a resale flat, the old type so there's no service yard for me to put the main unit. Based on what I see from the neighbours, they place outside the window of the master bedroom.

My question is: for old flats like this, how many units are we allowed to place outside? Are we allowed to stack a few, for example?

Only single compressor, the condenser Height is cannot over the window bottom level only.

To anonym99,

Have you considered other brands like Daikin and Mitsubishi Electric?

To cynic_,

You might be able to install 2 outdoor units depending on the type of HDB you are staying.

Hi,
Any cheap 3rd party repair for both air-con and wiring problems?
I am using mitshibushi msxy-fd10va. only one unit have this problem.
The air-con all the lights are blinking non-stop ether with turn on or turn off. (i tried turning off and on the main switch still having the same problem. The lights blink when the main power is turned on. (not using air-con remote))
I called mitshibushi up and they told me to get a third party to try first as this might be a wiring problem and they don't do wiring. This is a 50% 50% chance.


thanks

Try to remove the air blade after put back again.
Cause on right side was the detection on that air swing blade.

Make sure slot in properly as well

If wiring should be totally can't function at all, meant no power.

hi all,

Brand : Mitsubishi electric
Model : MXY-3A28VA / MSY-GE10VA x 3

Fan coil capacity : 3 X 8,530 Btu/hr
All on capacity : 3 X 8,530 Btu/hr

Supply and install air con with 1/2" Armaflex insulation, copper pipe gauge 23 and 16mm PVC drainage piping by "exposed trunking’’

i do not understand what is the meaning of exposed trunkings.

Quoted $3.2k

is this ok?
